Medical City Las Colinas is proud to be one of the first hospitals in the Dallas / Fort Worth area to use the Acessa Guidance System, the latest technology for the treatment of uterine fibroids, which affects about two thirds of all women.

The Acessa Guidance System uses electromagnetic tracking technology and radiofrequency ablation to treat symptomatic uterine fibroids laparoscopically. When coupled with ultrasound, it provides instant feedback of device trajectory to the targeted fibroid and tracks the surgical instruments in real-time.

“Uterine fibroids are one of the most common presentations for a woman to come in with complaints to their obstetrician and gynecologist” says Darshna Chandresakhara, Obstetrician/Gynecologist at Medical City Las Colinas. “The Acessa technology is exciting and allows women to recover quickly and be back to regular activities within two to three days.”

The use of the Acessa Guidance System allows physicians to shrink the size of uterine fibroids in a matter of minutes, which can eliminate the painful symptoms associated with these fibroids, including heavy bleeding, bloating and pain during menstrual cycles. Using two small incisions, physicians are able to target only the fibroids without damaging the uterus or any other tissue. Acessa™ presents a new alternative to patients sufforing uterine fibroids.

Medical City Las Colinas has long been known for their focus on women’s health and the addition of the Acessa® Guidance System furthers this tradition. To learn more about this procedure, visit to
